just got provided with a great second hand website outta the states...might be the way to go...the bass guys down there are crazy.

 

honestly wish i didnt need autochart, but fishing with GB charts is hopeless. Yesterday I was fishing on a spot that apparently was 300 meters into dry land.

Garmin makes some good ones. And if you can find discontinued ones. The price isn't bad. And you don't have to share them to use them

If you can find a HDS Gen 2 on the market.  Maybe Angling Outfitters?  Although Jos is always sayin these are in high demand  and don't hang around for long, I know he had been upgrading lots of folks to the elite touch.

LOL John, once i chart auto chart all of these spots in 10 years time when the lake levels lower again Im gonna have depth charts that if i share to the community will end up with folks being 50 yards into the bush lol

 

 

Thanks for the suggestions guys...Thankful to a member here on OFC who guided me to a US based board where I was able to find a Helix 7 at an incredibly low price (for canada)...the buying power of the United States even after exchange and fees is just not fair to us Canadians. This was a real eye opener once again to just how bad us Canadians are getting ripped off by the manufacturers in the fishing market. Its honestly a bit disappointing that we are being gouged this bad.

 

I decided that Side imaging wasnt going to be worth the extra 400 dollars it was going to cost me to get a comparable unit so I went standard chirp to save a few bucks.

 

Spin you are bang on with you assessment, the two most commonly sold units right now are the hummibird 8-9 Si series units and the Lowrance HDS series units as people are upgrading to the touchscreen units with Down imaging. 

 

and people wonder why young people aren't fishing as much...the greed in this industry is going to kill the market.

 

thanks again for all of the help guys, this thread can be closed.
